Rep. Steve Scalise's condition is continuing to improve after he was shot Wednesday at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

Sava said Scalise will require surgeries soon for abdominal and bone injuries, in addition to the two he has undergone to fix a bone in his leg broken by the bullet.

Scalise continues to show signs of improvement after he was wounded in a shooting at a Republican baseball practice outside Washington.

The shot fired at Scalise left perhaps hundreds of bullet fragments internally, many of which may never be removed because surgery might be more unsafe than leaving them in place, Sava said.
